Snack #16: The President & Idiots

"We are all born ignorant, but one must work extremely hard to remain stupid". This quote washed through the internet with a picture of Benjamin franklin. Funny enough, there's no evidence of him ever saying that, but I'm sure I can find some who have taken this as fact and will work hard to retain their misinformation on this subject. What a paradox - well done, Benjamin.

Another quote by Mark Twain says: "Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

But how do you know if they are idiots? Are they just trying to learn, or are they willingly remaining stupid, causing havoc?

Showing empathy to people who are sure they are in the right, with no chance of error - is a challenge.
